JDR BAGS SAFANIYA WORK FROM MCDERMOTT
: JDR Cable Systems, the leading supplier of subsea power cables and umbilicals to the global offshore energy industry owned by TFKable Group, has been awarded a contract by McDermott for the Safaniya project. Owned and operated by Saudi Aramco, Safaniya is the world’s largest offshore oilfield located in the Persian Gulf.
JDR’s scope of supply includes five thermoplastic umbilicals and hardware connecting new production platforms to the subsea valve skid (SSVS). The umbilicals – which range from 100 to 465 metres in length – will provide hydraulic and electric control to the SSVS.
Chris Green, subsea production umbilicals sales manager at JDR, said: “This award is a testament to the partnership we’ve built with McDermott. This is our fifth combined contract for the Safaniya field and truly demonstrates the quality and reliability of our products. Speed of delivery was a key element of this win. Our experienced technicians ensure that every umbilical is delivered safely and on budget.”
The umbilicals will be manufactured at JDR’s state-of-the-art manufacturing facility in Littleport, UK, with delivery scheduled for Q4 2018.
The contract with McDermott forms part of a larger programme by Saudi Aramco, to replace Safaniya’s aging facilities with electrified platforms to increase the efficiency and production of the field. The field is located 125 miles north of Dhahran in the Arabian Gulf and is estimated to contain 37 billion barrels of oil reserves.
